Family Legends is the program I've used for some years to maintain my
genealogy database. Although it is designed with human beings in mind, I
was able to trick it into handling iris. While it doesn't print the
standard-format iris pedigree charts like the programs I wrote years
ago did, Family Legends does prepare a detailed ancestral chart with the
needed information and that is in itself a major time-saver.
In less than three hours, I figured out how to configure the database,

charts covering as many as 8 generations. The real pay-off will come with
future subjects, because I won't have to re-enter information about any of the
parents now in the database.
If anyone is interested in trying this, I can elaborate on the
